    Sad to see Cai/Fu a pale shadow of their former selves.

    For live matches in the stadium I always go until the semi final. The QF has 4 courts to choose while the SF has two. The final, I watch at home.

    The INA pair is playing so casually.

    If the Olympic and World Champion is going to continue participating in future tournaments with this kind of form, may as well call it a day.

    Quite similar to TH during is final years before retirement.

    What a steep smash by MA. GC says it landed about a metre in front of FHF.

    That angle of the smash by Ahsan was ridiculous

    Cai almost playing like an amateur, painful to watch.

    CHN pair has no answer to MA's smashes.

    Is the CHN pair participating due to sponsorship commitments like TH?

    at this stage, as long as they're able to make it into the last four, there should not be much complaint :D however i prefer to postpone my judgement until the coming WC :p for a more sounding conclusion

    a major tourney will provide clearer and more complete landscape pictures...

    If this were a boxing match, the referee (umpire here) would have stop the match.
    Oh no...spare me this pain.

    I hope INA pair will win it in straight to conserve energy, against the KOR who had it in straight :p

    LOL, Cai/Fu should call it a day.
    They accomplish everything pretty much, might as well as retired as a champion, rather than retired as a loser.
